Why is the online version of Excel of Office 365 features so limited. I can't perform simple actions such as custom sort or even add a simply a text box to a worksheet

Why is the online version of Excel of Office 365 so limited?

In advance it is not limited. For software that is free, the editing options are many.


One could ask exactly why does microsoft give so much for free?

To answer your question and mine very simply, it's about money.


Microsoft gives so much for free, because it expects that the users sometime when they have developed their knowledge in this software, then also take the step to buy it as a full version (depending on the needs).


Here are the options you have with the online version ... and as I said, there are quite a few:)

Excel for the web


In order not to be misunderstood, I am not an employee of Microsoft, I am just like you a simple user. A simple user who uses this forum freely to help other users voluntarily.

Also a possibility for microsoft to use this forum for free.


Always try to see the glass half full :))


Thank you for your patience and time.


Wish you a nice day / night with lots of health, joy and love.
